Rev. Geoffrey Black offers remarks at United Church of Canada’s General Council on full communion with UCC

The Rev. Geoffrey A. Black, recently-retired general minister and president of the United Church of Christ, led the denomination’s efforts to reach a full communion agreement with the United Church of Canada. The agreement was formally affirmed in June by voting delegates to the UCC 30th General Synod, and again last week by the Canadian denomination. Invited to speak to the 42nd General Council of the United Church of Canada, Black remarked on the similarities between the two churches, the hospitality extended to him and fellow UCC colleagues, and hockey.
